If you were in Dogtown in March, then you know that Dogtown is a traditionally Irish section of St. Louis and is best known for its annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
Legend is that Dogtown got its name because in 1875 a group of Irish miners were living in what is now Forest Park. The city decided to set that land aside for a park, so the miners moved south and built a group of shacks around the coal mines. To protect their shacks, families, and mines, the miners kept dogs for security. To this day the neighborhood is known as Dogtown.
But, there is more to Dogtown than a March parade and the history of its name.
